"The unique granite “Padthaway Marker” symbolises the region’s agricultural enterprises of livestock, grain, seeds, horticulture and vineyards. "

The Padthaway township was established in 1952 and is situated on the Riddoch Highway, 300 km south of Adelaide.

Today, Padthaway is a thriving small community in the Limestone Coast. The many farm industries, including vines, onions, cropping, mixed grazing and irrigation of pasture seeds provide employment for a population of around 220, which in turn supports a primary school of 45 students.

Most of the original soldier settlers have passed on their land to the next generation, many of who still farm the land to this day.

Padthaway thrives on locally run events and groups including football, netball, tennis, golf, cricket, lawn bowls, ambulance and country fire services and religious organisations. These community groups make Padthaway a very close knit township, well supported by many volunteers.

The local community is serviced by a General Store/Post Office, Deli, Mechanical and Engineering workshop, agricultural contractors, freight companies and a tyre repairer, which are all owned and operated by local families. There are also two large agribusiness companies operating within the town.
